Skype in the time of Avurudu


AMALI, London: “We went on skype just before 7.20 pm SL time, my mum had already prepared everything on a traditional wooden stove with a pot and milk.

She told me to put milk and rice in a small pot and let it simmer on the owen. We live next to a temple in Sri Lanka, so we could hear the bell and pirith starting at 7.20pm.

So my dad, my cat & I were in the kitchen in the UK & my mum, gran and some other family members were in the kitchen in SL. And we waited till the milk boiled over and said the prayers with everyone as we could hear it through skype. And we could hear fireworks too. It was like we were back home.

“இனிய புத்தாண்டு நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள் & ශුභ අළුත් අවුරුද්දක් වේවා to all my beautiful Sri Lankan Brothers & Sisters. May the Gods bless us with Peace, Unity, Love & Happiness. ♥ ”

Amali was born in Stuttgart.
